How happy is your roof? Quite often people start to see those green or black stains on their roof brought about by the rain and high humidity of our summers here. The algae, moss, mold and other organisms that thrive during this time period make themselves known and they look awful. What’s worse, they ARE awful for your roofing materials, as they use them as food. But if you hire us to clean your roof with our softwash BioWash product, you could be having the rain work for you, instead of against you.
We’ve written a bit in the past about why you want us to BioWash your roof instead of pressure washing it, but we thought we’d tell you a little bit about how it works this time. The BioWash product we use to clean roofs works to remove mold, mildew, algae and bacteria through the use of natural enzymes. So it removes these microorganisms and their stains safely, environmentally, and it is also not dangerous for many different types of roofing materials from tiles to shingles.
Our technicians have been specially trained in the process of using this powerful cleaning product to sanitize and protect your roof without pressure washing or standing on the tiles. BioWash is completely benign for your landscaping plants and grass because it’s biodegradable. The solution is a formulation of living enzymes as active ingredients that eat away at lichens, moss, algae and bacteria. These enzymes also break down contaminants such as dirt, pollen, spider webs and oils, as well as the effects of acid rain.
Rather than blasting off a top layer of dirt and grime, as well as the granules of your shingles with a power washer, the BioWash enzymes get into the nooks and crannies of your roof, killing bacteria and algae on the microscopic level. It does not damage tiles over time, and instead it returns them to their original color.
Here’s the best part, the enzymes in BioWash are re-activated by rain! So every time it rains your roof is getting deeply cleaned, preventing staining and damage done by the microorganisms that eat roofing materials.
BioWash is also a great solution to keeping your brand new roof, on your brand new home, from ever getting those black streaks to begin with. So if you’ve moved into a new construction home, even though the roof is not dirty yet, you should consider having us BioWash it right now, and get on a twice-a-year maintenance plan. You will literally never see a dirty roof, and your roofing materials will last longer by never letting the microorganisms that cause damage to take root.
Not only that, did you know that many insurance companies require that homeowners maintain a clean roof as part of house maintenance in general? So as a new homeowner, maintenance can go a long way toward saving you money when it comes to insurance. Best of all, our regular maintenance plan helps to sustain the longevity of your roof.
We hope you’ll call us today to clean your roof with this environmentally and roof friendly product. If you’re interested in having the black stains on your roof removed safely and with long-lasting results, give us a call at Under Pressure at 239-218-5085!
